Another thing I meant to mention is some of the cancer thru the floor is only reachable behind the fender, a little above where your toes would be when sitting on the passenger side. I would have to remove that fender. Does that mean I'm getting into replacing some of the firewall?
I'll likely remove my fenders since I'm going to be rebuilding the front end at the same time, although I will likely leave them on to do the torque boxes and floor pan area, then remove them. With the fenders off I would like to clean up the old delaminating undercoating which I'm sure traps water making it more rust prone. I'm going to remove the undercoating as much as I can and rustproof/prime/prep and do whatever coating I need to in those areas that will be durable and minimize the chances of this happening again.
Speaking of torque boxes are there any writeups about replacing them? Interestingly most of the floorpan rust is on the passenger size, but the torque box on that side is in much better shape than the one on the driver side.
